#CTIA 2010: Samsung Galaxy S Specs and Hands-On

We were at the Samsung Unpacked S-Life Event at CTIA 2010, and it was all about the Galaxy S. Fortunately I was able to glean some extra specs and a few live photos. I’ll add more photos and videos as they come.

So here’s what we know about the Samsung Galaxy S so far. As mentioned earlier, the device will have a 1 GHz processor with 90 million triangles/second. According to Oman Khan, Senior VP of Strategy, Products and Services for Samsung, this means the new processor will be three times as fast as some of the leading smartphones on the market today (Which smartphones exactly, he didn’t say).


One of the defining features of the Galaxy S is its thinness, at 9.9 mm. Khan mentioned that the Super AMOLED screens are incredibly thin, thus making the devices that much thinner as well.

The Galaxy S will also feature:

  • Android 2.1,
  • 4″ Super AMOLED (which is 20% brighter and eliminates 80% of sunlight glare),
  • Social Hub,
  • 16 GB internal storage plus MicroSD capability
  • Document Editor
  • Remote Controller for Samsung TVs
  • Google Maps Navigation with Voice search and turn-by-turn (as well as real-time traffic updates)
  • Daily Briefing, a way to view your favorite widgets and info on one page
  • Wireless tethering (the presentation led me to believe that it broadcasts its own MiFi, instead of tethering via Bluetooth)
  • HD Movie Recording
  • Layar Augmented Reality Browser
  • allshare via DLNA
